Then I hunted out some celery, couldn't use a few of the outer pieces, but still had plenty for what I was making.
Always use the recipe secrets for this meal, but this is the first time I tried the bullion, next time I will stick to what I usually use which is container chicken broth.
Next I must add some liquid...the above top is just water, 8 cups I believe, then added vegetable juice 48 ounces I think. By now you probably know that this meal is going to be soup. Cabbage soup to be exact.

One more check before dishing it up for dinner.
Very good, I hadn't had this meal in ages, my husband requested it.
While this was cooking I had 2 zuchinni to use, so I found a recipe for zuchinni cupcakes. I got distracted and didn't get to take many in between pictures which you might be thinking (Good!!)
The first cup is how much I needed for one batch of the zuchinni cupcakes, the second cup is 3/4 cup of what I needed, so I reduced the recipe (not an easy job to reduce by 3/4's for me)
Next time I make these I will change 2 things, I will cook all batches in cupcake tins (the bread did not turn out quite as well as the cupcakes) and I will run the zuchinni through the food processor before adding. It tasted delicious, but the look of it I think will be more appealing.
While the cupcakes and bread was baking, I took the parts the recipe didn't call for (peel off the green and the seeds) so in the frying pan this went with a little olive oil to be lunch for me and my husband.
They were so good, they only lasted 2 days I believe, between 5 people.
So I know this is slightly out of order in a way. I made the cabbage soup first, then the cupcakes/bread, then the sauteéd zuchinni. However they were eaten in a different order. Zuchinni for lunch, had to test a cupcake after lunch. Cabbage soup for dinner, and cupcake for dessert.
Today I hope to be back with some more posts, I know I said that the other day, but it didn't happen.
